need help on pricing a downed pine tree.

One of my accounts has about a 75 foot pine tree that came down and they want it taken off. I figure it would take me and a helper a full day to delimb it, break it down and haul it off. I also figure it will take several loads on the dump truck to haul it out. I don't do a lot of clean up work so im not sure how to price it. Any thoughts?

$1500 to $1800. Pine trees are really hard on equipment, especially chains.

Would you believe the guns I hired to help went to the beach instead and never told me. Just didn't show up. I won't be hiring them again. Fortunately the tree is out of site from everything so I can do it whenever.

nc,
What diameter is the girth of the trunk and timber line.
The tree is already down. It isn't like you are going to have to climb, rig, and lower limbs to the ground and then section this tree off. Around here a pine tree will bring 8-900.00 to rig down depending on close proximity to a home. If the tree is on the ground, considering it is pine and will be sappy, 650.00. This doesn't include stumping though.
Not all areas get the same pricing as insurance, dump fees, labor rates,etc. will vary.

Be careful if you aren't used to running a saw. Watch for kickback, pinching and always for roll away.
